Yes, and I didn't know that DuckDuckGo allows turning redirection off
in the settings and via the URL parameters. Referrer is already
forged, so there is no reason to have a redirect:
http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/?q=%s&kd=-1&kh=1 can easily serve as the
default search engine, and http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/?kd=-1&kh=1
can be a default start page (in absence of a dedicated Tor-oriented
one) — although http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/?kd=-1&kh=1 seems to
provide results via https://duckduckgo.com/ for some reason after a
search term is submitted. I guess this is a bug, since without
"?kd=-1&kh=1" DuckDuckGo keeps the .onion address.
